Everyone knows what Slim Fast is thanks to the irritating adverts that have been shown over the years. But just incase, Slim Fast is meal replacement diet. On the diet you replace breakfast and luch with a glass of milkshake, and have a healthy tea.
Slim Fast is a waste of money. Afetr drinking the milkshake I still felt hungry. My stomach felt full and bloated yet I wasn't satisfied. I felt the need to eat in my mouth and throat.
It is available as either powder to mix yourself, or in tins for on the go.
The taste of the milkshake left something to be desired. Available in Strawberry, Banana and Chocolate, after mixing it still tasted powdery and lumpy.
People have made the mistake of drinking slim fast with a meal, and had to watch the piles pack on. As Slim Fast is high in carbohydrates and protein and low in fat it is like eating a meal. It gives you your nutritional requirements so drinking it with a meal is like eating double the amount.
Maybe Slim Fast will work well for other people but it doesn't work for me. I enjoy my food too much too only eat once a day.
The price is fairly reasonable, for a tin of powder ranging from £5-8 and a ready mix tin from 79p.
